Indigenous Peoples' Victory: Largest Dam Removal In The World
_____ | popularresistance.org | 2020-11-24
After nearly two decades, Indigenous Peoples win an agreement for the largest dam removal in the world. Four of the six dams on the Klamath River in California and Oregon will be taken down, allowing the water to flow freely again and the salmon to spawn.

Maternal Docosahexaenoic Acid Supplementation and Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia in Infants–Reply
Marc I, Julien P, Lavoie PM. | jamanetwork.com | 2020-11-24
In Reply Dr van den Akker and colleagues propose a possible explanation linking potential deficits in proresolving lipid mediator synthesis to why DHA failed to improve bronchopulmonary dysplasia in both the N3RO and MOBYDIck trials. As they mentioned, proresolving lipid mediators D and E resolvin series derived from DHA and eicosapentaenoic acid, respectively, have potent roles in the active regulation of inflammatory processes. Arachidonic acid–derived lipoxins appear particularly important for initiating the resolution of the inflammatory cascade.
